Really nice stuff, man. I wish I could come up with a crit or something, but I'm not seeing anything. Really like your faces, there's alot of personality there. Post some more.
nice drawings of you and jane, you got those likenesses down! rock on!
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
Full Bag of Tricks going down here :::: got you locked in
great stuff dude, i like that first one alot. is that what i think it is?
Looking really good, some of it looks a bit flat, though. Try and reall push those values. Really awesome stuff.
Put your hands in the air like you got the heat to your back

I freestyle my destiny, it's not written in pages
these sketches are looking REALLy nice. your characters are all very individual and well thought out. I like how your able to sculpt the characters with such minimal usage of line too, it looks like you know exactly what you want when you start and are able to do just that. the one thing i'd say as far as a criticism is that you may want to try throwing in some more value, really pop those guys out off the page. great work though, keep posting.
puuuurty. I'll be checkin' back as well. Rock on.
Encouragement keeps me swimming , even in the undertow of disappointment.
great stuff miguel!
u know i like' em
hope we get to draw sometime this week on the break..
c ya around man
Honest love makes one's soul a reflection of the partner's mood.
No sleep - More draw!
Nice stuff man. And a nice painting on that last dump.
Ba da bap bap ba - miguel should post more
For real this is a wonderful bouquet of fragrant awesomeness in sketch form. Glad to see your keeping busy dude, but hey, I know your busy in big fancy art school Are you almost done? If i remember correctly you had a year or so left.
This all looks really good to me dude, that first pic is one of my fav of your portraits. I love the imagery yer pulling out of that sick brain of yours -looks at pic of floating amputee- If you want a crit i'd say try building values on the sketches more. These have great form and structure but it might be cool to put down a ground and pull out some highlights. Don't be afraid to dig into em'.
keep it real homes, see you in frisco.
--> great painting too
great great stuff, I can't believe no ones rated this thread!
You need to do more anatomy...and check your values....wait...did I just say that?
hey all, thanx for all the crits and feedback.
im sorry i havent updated this thread in a while, ive been busy with projects, finals, illustrations, preperations for san fran and going back home for xmas; and life in general, also im working on updating my website ...sorry for the delay on that one but here are a couple of the sketches ive been working on lately.
im working on more traditional media lately, mostly oil paints, i need to hone my wacom skills a bit more but i just LOVE oils, ill take some pics of my recent paintings soon.
hands studies...very stylized
gouache, ink &watercolor
portraits from life

drawing for my next illustration: animal cliches, this one is cockblocked, and although its not an animal phrase i decided to play with the wording.
king of the puss filled throne
alien girl with ghetto hand sign

5 Bones ::: love the imagination
damn, these are amazing. i had to save alot of them. that cockblocked one is money. keep posting dude.
Damn! I new I was missin' somethin' in my diet! Mmmmm Nourishing!
Do you always start out sketching so loosely and begin to tighten 'em up? You've got some awesome style. I know I used to glow about you in the old thread and I'm back to do it some more! I just love your work, bro.
The Cockblocked one is awesome, as Flex said. But I really like the girl with the robot... I can't wait to see that all finished up. Lovely work, bro. You've got some imagination. How often do you draw per day? And how large of a sketchbook do you work in? Some of those pages looked pretty big.
Keep it rockin' bro. It's awesome to have you back.
very nice man. i like how you have a unique style to your pics. Perhaps you can give me some tips on shading? Thanks bud.
Da Vinci was a concept artist
11/30/03-11/30/05. Thanks CA, for all the great inspiration. When will I update? I dont know...
i really admire your work dude. u make me wanna get up and draw right now...too bad im so lazy
cool beans to you...my friend.
sKeTcHbOoK update page3 (scroll to the bottom of page)
Very cool concepts and nice sketches. How long have you been drawing?
Besides that, I would love to see some finished pieces, because all of these sketches seem to have huge potential. Keep it up.
i love the portraits of the bag and the condiments and the little dudes (one of them is from FF i think). The devil with the cavaty is awesome aswell i like the cool style. Reminds me of some sketchs i saw that chris cunningham did.
mentler - thank you...your lifes studies are fun
andre, roger, flex - thanx you guys
zebzfree - i usually start with a lot of scribbles then i ttry to tighten it up trying to keep line quality in mind. i dont render as mcuh as i would like though. ive been drawing since i could hold something, but i started to draw from life and figure around when i was in 11th grade. i have all sorts of size but mine is too big for my scanner, 9.5 x 12 is what im working on now.
mike - thanx it means alot coming from u
obid - sure, you got my aim, just IM me any time
dadamfia - draw draw draw
odds - theyre on their way, thanx
georgem - yea it a series of a little creature i have incorporated in many drawing. i use him alot, its sorta a trademark thing i use now .... i guess.....its just fun stuff.
velo - thanx
steak - thankx man, much love
patternagainst - than you
eyal - thanx man, we need to get together before semster is through
josh - thanx man i hope i get enough HP as well....hehehhehehee
a few more sketches ive done
awe-zum posts ma-man
Juss like last time, I'm lovin' it! [nodding at myself disappointingly for making the McDonalds reference]. Really some of those pics are eye-popping, Longgirl.jpg is one of my favorites of yours. It's a very elegant drawing, great delicate handling of the features and the colors work beautifully, esp. with the yellow highlights. I'm really looking forward to seeing these in person.
Girl on the robot is a great one too. hand studies... damn those are some nice ones! There's so many it's hard to comment on allovem.
Since you mentioned crits I'll try to offer up some suggestions: As I said before you could push value. If you were to render everything out almost all surfaces of the object in question would have a variation of tone. In allot of these sketches you have an outlined form with a few tonal changes but it's more like a notation. Use the structure you establish in the beginning and push the value down the scale. Darken up the spots you put in the beginning and shade further in. I think you understand this stuff so I wont keep rambling, you have great value in your paintings. I just think you could push this more, I also notice allot of shade hatches going in the same direction which can flatten out the form. i'd suggest Killing.people's thread, he's been doing some hatchings along the form of the object recently much better than I can. He also has a great explanation for the theory behind it.
Great portraits dude, I think I spied a Kyler Dirtch in there . You're hard work shows, I have no doubt you'll have a successful and fulfilling career from what ever you decide to do with your talent.
Keep posting man, iss always a pleasure - we'll get some drawing on at the coast.
